Spoluzemě Vrábsko consists of people who have decided to live in close connection with nature, with others, with themselves and with their mission. It was founded in Autumn of 2019.
We are settled in a small village surrounded by beautiful woodlands, meadows, ponds & creeks. With a community of 15 people we are making a foundation for a future eco village. We are designing a permaculture plan for the land that one of our member owns; we are gardening, conserving & fermenting food, making herbal tinctures; we are building tiny houses, renting yurts in a yurtcamp, making natural soaps & cosmetics, we recycle old fabric into carpets, etc; we cook vegan meals for groups, we prepare raw vegan products for sale, we organise small events such as festival of self-sufficiency and healthy lifestyle retreats.
The place consists of several consecutive plots, and one separate one. At present, the main housing and facilities for members and their activities are two so-called ‘Enclaves’. Between them is a large meadow with a permaculture garden and an area with yurts. The total land area is about 9 hectares.
At the beginning of 2022, around 14 adults and 4 children lived in the community. The common activities include sharing common households, developing and caring for indoor and outdoor spaces, shared meals, frequent work / organisational meetings, celebrations, music jams, rituals, internal self-development seminars, work weekends and events for the public. The community has a clear structure – members and awaiting members form work groups that deal with the development of the project, which is coordinated by an elected council and a circle of the whole community meets and negotiates nine times a year.
For the practical and creative needs of the members and for the realisation of some degree of self-sufficiency, we have a zero waste shop, a permaculture garden and a sewing workshop.
